OLEDB Connection string with authorization

  • 1.  OLEDB Connection string with authorization

    Posted 07-29-2021 11:20
    Hi,

    I use OLEDB to connect the SharePoint List table. Before first connection I have to open SharePoint List on IE to get authorization.

    Do you know the way to get authorization directly in the connection string?
    Do you know other tool that helps me download data from table without opening Sharepoint list using IE?


    Connection string:
    "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;WSS;IMEX=0;DATABASE=" & [C_Constants.T_SHP_Summary_List_Name]& ";LIST=" & [C_Constants.T_SHP_Summary_List_ID] & ";

    Thank you in advance

    Hi Mateusz,

    You might take a look at the MS Graph for SharePoint integration available on the DX. It includes several actions for working directly on SharePoint Lists.

    Hi Eric,

    Thank you for your help.

    MS Graph is right now not an option for us.

    I am looking for other solution.

    Kind regards

    I'm not sure there's any way to work around the browser prompt w/o moving to Graph or using some of the older SharePoint access libraries. I did come across a really old post shown below, but it sounds like this may be what you're already doing. There seem to be quite a few posts online over the years of people trying to include credentials in an OLEDB connection string for connecting to a SharePoint list, but not many answers. :-(

    You mentioned Graph wasn't an option. What about the default SharePoint REST API?
